St. Charles Parish Partners with CivicSource to Auction Tax-Delinquent Real Estate

July 27th, 2017

HAHNVILLE, La.– St. Charles Parish is updating its adjudicated property auction processes by implementing the proven technologies of CivicSource, the leading online auctioneer of tax-distressed real estate. The new online auction system will be an invaluable asset to the Parish Government, improve existing protections for homeowners and provide tremendous benefits to St. Charles Parish property investors. CivicSource will present on the new auction process at the St. Charles Parish Council meeting on July 31, 2017, at 6:00 P.M., located at 15045 River Road in Hahnville, Louisiana.

CivicSource specializes in digitized due diligence, ensuring all homeowners, heirs and persons of interest affiliated with a tax-delinquent property have been adequately notified and given ample opportunity to redeem a property before it qualifies for an adjudicated property auction. All tax-delinquent adjudicated properties for sale at CivicSource.com went unsold in a tax sale and have not been redeemed.

St. Charles Parish’s new, technology-driven property auctions will take place online at CivicSource.com, allowing bidders to conduct property research and participate in the auction from any internet-ready device whether at home, work or a public facility. CivicSource.com offers numerous innovative investor tools including access to auction legal research, integrated Google and GIS parcel maps, a proxy bidding feature, customizable watch lists and a sliding close function preventing last-second, online bid sniping.

The digitized legal compliance and online tax-delinquent real estate auctions provided by CivicSource will help St. Charles Parish restore significant, annually recurring revenues to the Parish from property taxes that had previously gone unpaid. “The partnership between St. Charles Parish and CivicSource will help return previously vacant land and properties back to use and commerce,” explains Michael Albert, Director of Planning and Zoning for St. Charles Parish. “This program saves taxpayers money on maintenance costs and provides opportunities for current and future residents to build homes and businesses in the Parish at very affordable rates.”
